Nutrients from juices

We all desire to live a long and healthy life. Our efforts are always directed towards that goal. When we get ill, we try to get a speedy recovery from the illness, mostly by using drugs prescribed by our doctors.

However, we can also easily eliminate such illness with success through the use of nutritious vegetable and fruit juices, free from the toxins contained in the drugs.

For example, carotene , (which is converted in to vitamin ‘A’) is very sensitive to oxygen in the air – if you shred or cut carrots in small pieces and keep it unused for, say 20 minutes, most of the vitamin ‘A’ it contains will be destroyed.
